I received a car from the widow of a customer in exchange for money owed for work done on the customers fabrication machinery of which I was owed 10 times of what the car was worth. The title was missing and the car had multiple problems of which I have spent time and money to repair myself...now the widow's son from out of state says that they found the title and want money or they will report the car as stolen. There was no written bill of sale and the title hadn't even been transferred from the original owner. He lost the title when he bought the car and never transferred it. I live in Oklahoma. I last worked on the equipment within the 4 month period in which i can still file a mechanics lien but the equipment has possibly already been sold to a local shop. another thing, he owned the house she lives in and took a loan out against it for his business. He was not incorporated. I now wish to file liens on the machinery in which the work was performed if at all possible.....Read More

We provided the electrical and mechanical installation in a operations building at Red Dirt Wind Farm in Oklahoma. We were contracted with what we thought was the prime contractor: Clear Creek Construction. Clear Creek told us that the owner was Enel Green Power. But Sean at zlien sent us a letter that his research turned up that Enel leased the property. So we are just trying to figure out who the property owner is and if they have any responsibility if the lien is filed. We have heard that property owners can file a non-responsibility notice....Read More

My contractor filed a mechanics lien on my property for $32,500. I signed a contract for an addition to be put on my home. The contract is for $88,300. I have unconditional lien wavers from his subs and from him totaling $137,000. I called the county clerk to ask them if I brought the waivers to them could they release the lien but the said "No, only he can release the lien". I thought I was protected because I have the waivers totaling MORE than the contract. How can I get the lien taken off my property? Thanks...Read More
